You are hurt beyond belief. The person you trusted. The person that committed to you. The person who told you that they love you.... is the person that has betrayed you! This is a shocking discovery, even if it is not the first time! I understand the heart ache, the confusion and the difficulty in trying to navigate your present pain and work towards re-grounding yourself and healing.

I have run men's groups for nearly 30 years helping men become more effective and loving husbands partners, fathers and sons as well as better stewards in their outside world.The aim of this Men's Group is to create a context where each man is able to be honest, vulnerable and feel safe enough to speak his previously undisclosed inner truth in the presence of other supportive men, and to feel and show emotions other than anger. A place where men can feel their deepest emotions - laugh and cry and restore a true brotherhood.

Often in life we can move on ‘auto pilot’ and be surprised when we feel hijacked by things such as anxiety, anger, substance abuse, depression, etc. I will aid you in processing your reactions and learn how to better identify and communicate your emotions. We are all carrying so much on our backs. Be it childhood experiences, trauma, anxiety, work or school stress, insecurities, self doubt and so much more. I will support you in finding the skills to tease apart, challenge, and cope with these issues.

Feel like #%!*? Let's talk about it. I offer a warm, creative, down-to-earth approach that is client-focused and collaborative. I work from a trauma-informed, anti-oppressive framework. I believe in bringing light and air to the parts of ourselves that need time and space to emerge. In our increasingly fragmented world filled with smart phones and twitter feeds, we could all use some good old-fashioned connection. I bring a deep curiousity about the ways we move through the world, the stories we tell ourselves and how our relationships are affected.

We enter psychotherapy for a wide variety of reasons: The death or loss of a loved one, illness, job loss, divorce, addiction, etc., but all of us seek help because we are trying to find a better way to deal with the reality we are facing. My job as a psychotherapist is to help you talk about your emotions and reactions in a safe environment, figure out where these emotions and reactions are coming from, observe whether your reactions produce the desired outcomes and, discover new ways to react, if that would produce more desirable outcomes

Life can often feel chaotic. The reality is that changes are presented to us outside of our control and we find ourselves faced with the task of making decisions and choices that will decide the course of our future. These untimely decisions and choices can leave us feeling bewildered and disoriented. To complicate things further, we can find ourselves stuck in emotional and behavioural patterns that inhibit and hold us back from making the decisions we would like to or that would be best for us. Sometimes it’s difficult to even know what we would like to do or what is best for us. What should you aim towards?

We've all felt stuck, frustrated, worried or like we are spinning out of control at one time or another. And sometimes we feel so... alone. You know there's more to you than meets the eye, if only someone could see it. Do you have this nagging intuition that what you want is just out of reach -- a better self-image, a better relationship or a better life? I'd like to help.

I offer one-on-one individual sessions for adults and youth navigating themes of depression, anxiety, grief, sexuality, gender identity, race/racism, childhood trauma, relationships issues, self-worth and harm reduction/substance use. I approach the exploration of healing and trauma processing with a non-linear, non-pathological perspective that recognizes the relationships between systemic oppression, intergenerational trauma, and adaptive survival/coping mechanisms. My hope is to ground our conversations in nuance, sensitivity and curiosity.

I make time and space for you to feel comfortable to start dealing with your concerns, explore solutions, or simply vent. The goal of my counseling is that you are more able to identify patterns that can lead to psychological distress, more able to challenge your inner critic or be comfortable verbalizing your experiences to those close to you. I encourage you to try healthy habits, new routines, and grounding techniques. I share the passion for promoting equity and diversity in my mental health work and personal life. My goal in my work is to support you and have you walk out feeling in a better place than when you walked!

Sexual Addiction Counsellors
Sexual addictions usually are revealed in stages: Preoccupation: continual fantasies about sexual prospects or situations, which can trigger episodes of sexual "acting-out": Ritualization: a preferred sexual activity or situation is often stereotyped and repetitive; Sexual Compulsion: continual engagement in sexual activity despite negative consequences and desire to stop; Despair: guilt or shame over inability to control behaviour or feel remorse; and, Other behavioural problems, particularly chemical dependency and eating disorders.

Sex addiction or love addiction in marriage is common and inevitably leads to betrayal and hurt. Overcoming and recovery from sexual addiction starts with recognizing that you are out of control.
